Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Happy Saturday everyone.......I say that not actually believing that today is in deed Saturday because this Wednesday felt like Saturday.  Today felt like a Monday!

Summer and holidays in the middle of the week mess with me knowing what day of the week it is, but it didn't mess with my ability to get all but one shot for Scavenger Hunt Sunday.

1. Patriotic
After oogling all of the rainbow and ombre layered cakes on pinterest I finally whipped up a batch for the fourth of July.  These were super easy to make.  I used a boxed white cake mix and separated the batter into three bowls.  I then mixed in icing food color (which is why it is so vibrant) into the batter. Next you layer the batter, bake and decorate.  Super easy way to impress your BBQ guests.

2. View from above
We had a bbq/pool party over at my Dads for the fourth of July.  Grandpa let the girls invite their friends so we had 16 teenagers over (plus 12 adults).  The pool is set about four feet below the upper deck so it makes for great shots from above.
 3. Mosaic
 This is the one shot I had to pull from my archives.  I took this at the church on the campus of USD.

4. Something Tiny
I was putting clean laundry into Reids (pigsty) room and stepped on this tiny panda. Super cute but hurt like heck to step on it with bare feet.
5. Vibrant
Reid's boyfriend had this old guitar laying around and he asked her if she would paint on it for him.  She is almost finished with the front and about 50% done with the back. I will share the entire guitar once it is complete.  It is funky and fun.

Finishing this up as quickly as possible before my computer crashes.......AGAIN!  Sheesh

Happy weekend and happy Scavenger Hunt Sunday. I look forward to seeing what everyone came up with this week.
